Some are starting in BA for both legs. There may be about 10 of us but I think Bob has the exact count.

We had dinner with them one of the first nights in Qsine. I sent the picture via email because I still can't figure out how to do it here (even under Jim's tutelage).

Thanks, Jim. I did remember that. I have the pictures you sent us saved on my iPad, and I looked up their picture, but I still didn't remember them. Then Arlene sent me a group picture from a dinner we had at Qsine that they were part of, and the lightbulb went off in my brain! Thanks, Arlene!

I am very disappointed that I won't be there to attend these classes! Maybe I can get some one-on-one training if/when I see Jim and Kathleen in the near future.
